About Homecroft,IN

Homecroft had its start in 1923 when Frank Gates and his son Oliver bought 150 acres (61 ha), and, after working with the Works Progress Administration in the early 1930s to install storm sewers to drain the swampy area, started selling lots on 80 acres (32 ha). The development's location close to the interurban line in the 1930s and 1940s, and, as the automobile became prominent, to Madison Avenue in the 1950s and 1960s, made it popular for prospective suburban homeowners. The town was incorporated in 1949. Two additional sections of 40 acres (16 ha) and 30 acres (12 ha), respectively, were developed in the early 1950s. The town was designed to be exclusively residential, although a few commercial establishments have been built along Madison Avenue.
